RUPERT

BACKPORCH COFFEE ROASTING'S FOUNDERS DAVE AND MAJELL BEACH HAVE A THREE-LEGGED DOG NAMED RUPERT. THEY ACTUALLY HAVE THREE DOGS AND A LOVELY BABY GIRL NAMED SCOUT, BUT LETS TALK ABOUT RUPERT.

RUPERT IS A 165 POUND MASTIFF AND IS 1 LEG SHY OF A TABLE. RUPERT DOESN'T REALIZE HE'S ANY DIFFERENT THAN A FOUR-LEGGED FRIEND. HE WALKS THROUGH LIFE ON ALL THREE LEGS, HEAD HIGH, WITHOUT A CARE FOR CRITICISM. SIMPLY MARCHING TO HIS OWN DRUM. 

THE BEACHES AREN'T THAT DIFFERENT THAN RUPERT. THEY CHOSE NOT TO LISTEN TO "DOUBTERS" OF THEIR DREAM. THEY FOLLOWED THEIR VISION FOR PREMIUM, HAND SELECTED COFFEE IN BEND OREGON. STARTING FROM THE FIRST ROASTED BEAN IN 2009, THE COMPANY HAS GROWN TO TWO LOCATIONS,  A SECRET ROASTERY, AND SELECT WHOLESALE LOCATIONS ACROSS OREGON.

BACKPORCH COFFE ROASTING HAS ALSO BUILT RELATIONSHIPS WITH WITH SMALL FARMS IN LATIN AMERICA WHICH ALLOW FOR HAND SELECTED COFFEE.  THESE FARMERS ARE NOW CALLED FRIENDS THROUGH THE BOND OF FAIR TRADE AND APPRECIATION OF THE FINELY ROASTED COFFEE BEAN.  

THE  BEACH FAMILY IS PROUD OF THEIR LABOR OF LOVE.  THEY'RE ALSO PROUD OF RUPERT.
